Shameless Plug

The new CD is here!  I’m very excited, and hope that you will like the new songs and be encouraged.  This will be a “shameless plug” post, and for that, I apologize.  🙂

 The CD is available via check or paypal via this website, just click on the “Flight of Freedom” tab at the top of my home page.  It also will be available on Amazon and itunes this weekend, hopefully.  Those of you who live locally, the CD is at the Culpeper United Methodist Church office and Kk’s on the corner of Davis and Main St.

What does it sound like?  Is it any good?  Why should I buy it?  These are all questions I ask myself before buying a new CD.  I honestly cannot answer any of these questions very well; everytime I hear it I think, “Well, there’s me again.”

It sounds like….someone who loves love, and God, and Ireland, and music, especially celtic music.

It is as good as I can make it with what God has given me at this time…I pray it’s good enough to encourage you in your walk.

Should you buy it?  I should say yes, but that is totally up to you.  🙂

Ok, tomorrow I will be as back to normal as I am able.  Thanks for reading and considering.  🙂  Slainte, Lisa

Picking a Favorite

Many different instruments can be used to create the wonder that is celtic music.  Fiddle, tinwhistle, low whistle, guitar, accordian, bodhran drum, uillean pipes, hammered dulcimer, piano…..I’m sure I’m leaving out some, but you get the basic idea.  The other day as I was listening to a recording I tried to decide which instrument was my very favorite…the one I would miss the most if it was missing.  The winner?……..

The tinwhistles and low whistles…without a doubt.  Very expressive instruments that seem to “sing” the Irish melodies with just the right amount of melancholy or joy, depending on the tune.  I have some whistles, and have yet to capture the right sound.  Oh, I can play most of the notes, but there is so much more than that…the small little turns and dips and expression that makes it such a wonderful instrument.  But I’m glad I can’t play them right yet; it gives me something to work on to keep me out of trouble!  🙂

Enjoy whatever kind of music you’re listening to today, and sing to the Lord a new song!  Slainte, Lisa
